    That's a possibility. The SP's I've seen seem to have inconsistent silk screening on the lables of the rackets; not perfectly straight and stuff. Other than that they play the same.

    I use to get JP rackets; the paint job I notice on them seem to look better overall; besides getting the cloth case. Now I get CD rackets for use; usually I may go for a JP one if I wanted it.

    Thank you for the direct comparison of differing graphic standards. Its interesting that no one from YY has commented on this post yet. Surely they are aware of BC forum?

    By Comparing JP Code racket & SP code racket side to side, you will notice that JP racket indeed have a better paint quality. In terms of playability, i am thinking that we could measure it by comparing two rackets (1JP,1SP bot brand new) which has same weight, grip size, production batch, swing weight, & string it up with the same string (preferably from the same reel), tension, stringer & time. We just then be able to get the closest direct comparison in terms of playability between two rackets from different production code from time to time.

    E.g. Nanoray 60 would be a Nanoray 700RP made in Taiwan with a different paint job (this is just an example, I have no idea if it's the case for the NR60).

    I got told once that lower end models are pretty much clones of the higer end models, just made by Yonex instead of Apacs/Winex/etc.
    I had this suspicion based on the NS990 and NS9900...

    That could just be the QA department selecting which rackets go where.

    Racket A: graphic is not aligned properly...placed in Bin #1 for SP coding.
    Racket B: graphic is perfect...placed in Bin #2 for JP coding.

    It could be more than just graphic alone.
    The weight distribution, integrity of the material under (Laser or x-ray), bending tolerance, all will need to have a tighter limit.
    The best will be marked as player racquets, JP ,IP,etc
    Those that ended with a bigger margin of “error” will be marked as TH, TW,etc??
    The margin of error will be adjusted regularly to reflect the market requirements of any particular market to ensure just the right amount of racquets for that market.

    For example, top 4% will be marked as JP, IP, however if the demand is high it can be lowered to top 6 or 7% so that enough racquets will be able to reach that market.
    This is just my layman's term in explanation.

    Laser?? X-Ray?? These are badminton rackets not pieces for a fighter jet.

    Truth is...it could be any number of reasons why JP rackets comes out later than SP rackets.

    Spoken like a man trying to sell a JP coded

    I don't know what YY use to check the quality, do you?? The above saying( laser, x-ray) is just a figure of speech.
    That's why I said layman explanation.
    Nope my JP is a keeper now.
    Maybe 6 months from now, I might sell then.

    The graphics part has been talked about before in the past on the forums. Probably have to do a bit of digging.

    Other than the graphics, playability is identidcal.

    Even when I had two JP rackets of the same racket, they they played identically with very little difference. Simply grabbing one without comparing another, one would not notice.

    I wouldn't read in too much because one of the China pro players who had her blog (which is no longer there now) who used SP rackets said there is no differnece herself in playability.
